Movie Reviews

When Justice Fails
John J. Cunningham | 05/28/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Excellent movie featuring Marlee Matin. She is a fabulous actress. I think folks not familiar with the deaf culture might learn and have a better appreciation for the deaf community."
Close but no cigar
R. Couturier | AZ | 01/31/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Another in the long line of Fahey B movies. BUT...this one was slightly better than the others.

It would have been better if I hadn't known Marlee Matlin's character was ...oops,...almost gave the story away there! Anyway, I caught the giveaway at the very beginning, not subtle enough.

Jeff Fahey simply cannot "do" love, sentimentality, grief, sorrow, any of the emotions that do not involve lots of noise and stunts. He is good at what he does, just limited. What would the PC phrase for that be? Emotively Challenged?

This one had a better plot line, was more organized, has some surprises for the unsuspecting. One of the better Fahey Films that I have seen."
DVD - mystery movie

"When Justice Fails

Package arrived early and in good condition. This is an old movie which did not get a lot of publicity, but was very good, with a surprise ending."
Starts off strongly but declines into unbelievability
D. Thomas Longo Jr. | Delmar, MD USA | 11/03/2001
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The film starts off strongly with intriguing by-play between two police detective partners. But then they're given a homicide to investigate and things decline from there. The main suspect comes to be a brilliant young female prosecutor, who just happens to be deaf and dumb. The plot unfolds just too fancifully and unbelievably. The characters become ever more cardboardy. A shame, since in the early scenes the film did show promise of being interestingly edgy and taut."
